Perlman, Manning, Pantoliano, Flueger join Bitterman’s ‘The Job’
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bitterman is adapting his 1998 play about a hapless man named Bubba (Flueger) who is desperate to find a job and marry the woman he loves (Manning).
A drifter (Perlman) hooks him up with a slick employment agent (Pantoliano), but after agreeing to the job, Bubba finds that he is in over his head.
Production on the indie film begins today in Detroit.
“The Job” is produced by Kiki Goshay, exec producer of the Melvin Van Peebles docu “How to Eat Your Watermelon in White Company (and Enjoy it).”
